Two Local Students Selected As People To People Ambassadors
To help with costs there will be a fundraiser Tuesday, May 23. Support Jacob and Rachel by having dinner at WANA IGUANA in Canyon Country, at the intersection of Via Princessa and Sierra Highway, from 4:30pm to 8:00pm. Eat in or take out and a percentage of the sales will go towards their tuition costs.
Students submit an application and three recommendations as part of the selection process. They are interviewed and if accepted, they attend six orientation meetings.
Most Student Ambassador journeys are between two and three weeks long, depending on their grade level and the countries to be visited. Programs for high school students tend to last about three weeks. Programs for fifth and sixth grade students are usually about two weeks in length.
Since 1956, the People to People organization has enabled Student Ambassadors to journey to 34 countries on all seven continents. They gain an understanding of the culture, politics and history of the destination countries.
